Mutton chukka Varuval Madurai Muniyandi Vilas

Mutton Chukka Varuval is a lip smackling recipe serve as a sidedish with rice, pulao, briyani or as starter.. Mutton chukka is not very regular in our menu but whenever we get in to the hotels, its mostly briyani or chukka as its our favourite.. I wanted to share this version which is most popular in madurai especially Muniyandi Vilas a famous non-veg hotel...

Few days back my friend visited our home.. My hubby wanted me to make some non vegetarian dishes for them especially in mutton.. This is a first time i am trying this chukka and kola urundai but soon i posted the kola urundai which i prepared for them.. Keep watching friends.. There are many verious methods in making this dry fry by changing the ingredients...

But I made this dish very simple by excluding the addition of grinded masala.. This is an easy dish to make the taste is exotic with Rasam rice / Briyani / Pulao... So I hope that you must try this recipe and let me know how it's turns out from you...
